Robotics is a revolution in the world of accurate suggestions...the secret is in the "Versus" robot.
The first of its kind in the UK, a robot has helped a 61-year-old man save his life by removing a 2.3-inch malignant tumour from his throat.
To removes a 2.3-inch-diameter tumour from a patient named Martin Nugent, surgeons at the Royal Gloucestershire Infirmary used a new generation of robots called Versius. A form of minimally invasive surgery, which uses smaller incisions and lessens scarring and postoperative pain, was used by the robot to complete the procedure. "I knew I was the first patient in the nation to be treated in this manner," Nugent reportedly told the British Daily Mail. The fact that such a thing is taking place in Gloucester is truly amazing.
The robotic surgeon's manufacturer, CMR Surgical, stated: "The robot provides surgeons with a high level of precision while completing complex procedural steps or operating in challenging environments." She continued, "Surgeons can do more of their complicated procedures laparoscopically with great degrees of precision and control." The company's general manager, Anna Raddock, said in a statement: "We know that minimally invasive surgery improves patient outcomes and can speed up recovery and that surgical robots help enable the minimally invasive approach."
